National Library Week 2022
The West Library is celebrating National Library Week during April 4-7, 2022. National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable roles libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities.
According to the American Library Association, the theme for 2022 “Connect with Your Library," promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes — in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other. Overall, the theme is an explicit call to action — an invitation for communities to join, visit or advocate for their local libraries.
